Mary B. Eddy thanks [Anne Warren?] Weston for a copy of the Liberty Bell and regrets that she has been unable to contribute anything to the anti-slavery fair or to the Liberty Bell owing to her husband's ill health. She hopes that the failure of George Thompson to visit New Bedford "was not owing to the want of abiding place." She extends a standing invitation. Eddy said: "What pleasant accounts you give of your sisters, at Paris, they will hardly wish to return I think, how they are called upon to blush for their disgraced country." She refers to a Miss Williams of Wilmington, N.C., who wrote that Washington, DC, "is a dreary place" and that all southern cities are the same. She tells about the black people in the southern cities. "Our poor colored inhabitants live in a constant state of alarm, many of them thinking that they shall be looked up as soon as warm weather comes on." Mrs. Drinker died. Rev. Wise's health failed and he moved to Worcester. She gives news of New Bedford residents, including: J Ricketson, Mrs. John E. Emerson, and Mrs. Packard, etc
